Scholarships are awarded to applicants who have demonstrated excellent academic ability, who will contribute to the University’s groundbreaking research, and who will go on to contribute to the world as leaders in their field, pushing the frontiers of knowledge. The University contributes 40% of the funds for these scholarships, together with 60% from generous donations provided by numerous supporters of the University and its colleges.
The Oxford-NaturalMotion Graduate Scholarships were made possible through the success of one of the Department of Zoology’s previous graduate students, Torsten Reil. In 2001, Torsten founded NaturalMotion Ltd to develop computational methods for animating movement far more realistically than formerly possible. Its products are used extensively in Hollywood films and in best-selling computer games. Funds from NaturalMotion Ltd were used to establish a graduate scholarship fund. Projects in the broad area of zoology are eligible (including evolution, ecology, disease biology, genomics, developmental biology, animal behaviour), especially projects that include applications of computational methods to biological questions.
The scholarship will cover 100% of University and college fees and a grant for living costs (of at least £13,863). Awards are made for the full duration of your fee liability for the agreed course.
You should be applying to start the DPhil in Zoology course at Oxford.
Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of academic merit.
